Sex Reflection Paper

Improved Essays
This semester as an elective I am taking a sexual learning course which goes very much in depth with sex. Not only the actually act of having sex but so much more. Yes the course goes very much in depth in the actually act itself but the course also talks about the different types of sex, forms of sex, sexual diseases and so much more. Before I thought I knew about sex and I did but I did not know how much more there was to know and learn about the idea of sex. Sex is not simple and this course has taught me that from the very beginning. Sex does comes in many forms and our job as society is not to judge others for the way they express their sexual desires but to learn and understand their way of expressing their sexual desires and bodies. …show more content…
I knew that sex is between two consenting individuals, either a heterosexual couple, homosexual couple or any other form of people as long as the two people involved are consenting to one another. Unlike rape which could be considered having sex one of the individuals did not consent to it therefore I do not see that as having sex. For me sex is when both people involved are willing to commit the act of intercourse, whether that intercourse comes in the form of an erected penis coming in contact with a vagina and being inserted into that vagina or as in the case with a homosexual couple inserted through the buttocks which is known as “anal”. I knew that sex has many different positions that an act like intercourse can be handled from and each position gives both partners a different feel of pleasure and comfort. Also, that sex is not the only form of sexual activity a couple can perform on each other. There are others ways to please and arouse your partner such as oral sexual activities or the simple fact of just pleasing them in another fashion which does not involve any sexual activities at all. These are the simply things I knew about sex but taking this course has opened my mind to new and exciting things about …show more content…
Sex is all around us starting with the actually act itself, commercial advertising, and beauty pageants. I learned so much about sexual education from taking this course. I learned to accept and be opened minded to others sexual preferences and desires. To never judge people for only they and God know what transgressions have they gone though. As said before it taught me to be open minded. To try and interact with new ideals and be opened minded when it comes to sex and sexual activities. Even though I know the limits I am willing to take and where the line draws for me. It is still good to keep an open mind to explore one’s sexual identity. To be open with your partner about ideas and feelings you might have towards trying a different approach in the realms of sexual pleasure. To have the up most respect and have a tremendous amount of communication with your partner. I learned all the different forms of sex and got a heavy dose of how kinky the idea of sex can actually become. Another thing is that sex is not as dry and cut as it is portrayed in the public. Sex is so much more complex and interesting than society gives it credit for being. Society as a whole sees sex as very vanilla and any other form of sex is too taboo for society. Society treats sex as a taboo subject yet sex is a major part in our daily life’s and is a big part of daily living. Yet, people still do not want to

    Sexuality is an important aspect of human growth and individuals should explore their sexual fantasies and desires within the appropriate cultural norms.

    After reflecting on polyamory, I realized that my sexual identity and expression is better defined by polyamory than monogamy. While I was filling the intake, I was able to explore better my sexual and relationship history to better understand my sexual identity. The struggle that I face be clear about my identity is due to my cultural values. I am culturally bound to monogamy, but I have not been able to maintain a healthy monogamous relationship, most of the times.

    While it is quite possible to have intensely intimate relationships which are not sexual and sexual relationships which are devoid of intimacy, Giddens suggests that preoccupation with the body and exploring sexual pleasure is increasingly part of both self-construction and ‘the pure relationship’. (Jamieson 1999:478) It can be further argued that sex becomes essential to experience an intimate and satisfactory relationship. This point of view towards intimacy grows more prevalent as the amount of sexual imagery that a person is exposed to in the 21st century also becomes more…

    In addition, because sex is seen as essential to everyone, it becomes something that is socially constructed and managed by society. Freudianism elaborates on the idea of how the society and social norms and expectations work to shape the meaning and form of sexual instinct. As a result, a person’s sexual and psychological self change as they struggle between a drive for sexual pleasure and the social expectation of being a respectable and responsible citizen (Seidman…

    Women's Hook-Up Culture

    While women have fought tirelessly to be treated as equal to men, the oppression of women persists because women’s sexuality continues to be emphasized by society more than other attributes and characteristics. Patriarchy not only has men at the forefront of political and religious decisions, but also it allows men to control social and cultural institutions. This results in misplaced authority over women, their bodies, and how they are perceived by society. Men and boys believe they should be able to express their sexuality without consequence while women and girls are to have their sexual activity regulated. Female sexuality is repressed by the double standards of the popularly practiced hook-up culture while, simultaneously, it is exploited…

    Jayanthi was in a dangerous situation, where saying no could dig her into a deeper hole, while undermining the identity she has. For Solomon, a similar pressure to prove his masculinity and sexuality but him in a position to agree to have sex with women. Sexuality is not a concept we typically think of as labeled, yet comments about promiscuity provides even stronger archetypes than gender and sexual identity. The good girl cannot have sex, the bad girl will have sex with anyone, the virgin is shamed in men and praised in women, the player scores many women. It goes far beyond Bell’s archetypes of the Sexual Woman, Relational Woman, and Desiring Women.…

    There are males who always want sex but that is not a statement that is always true. A female sexual script that has been relevant in my life is that women should look like models. This particular sexual script is one that is not only being influenced by males but also by females. You hear and see this sexual script everywhere you go. I think sexual scripts for the most part negatively impact all of us.…
